INN FAQ Part 7

NOTE: The maintainers of the INN FAQ stopped publishing in December 1997.
An important update to this topic is provided by Mib Software in the Usenet RKT for Subscribers.

Subject: (7.9) Why am I forwarding cancel messages for articles in comp.foo
when I explicitly have !comp.foo in the newsfeeds entry?

Control messages can be explicitly forwarded, so a control message to
comp.foo is forwarded to sites that receive either comp.foo or control.
Please see the "Control Messages" section of innd.8. As that
documentation says, you probably want to put "!control" in the
subscription list for most of your newsfeeds.
